Last Saturday, Servette Rugby Club were crowned Lyon County Champions 2015 of the 9th division by claiming a victory over St Amour Coligny (47-0) in Villefranche-sur-Saône (France).
For their first year in the French championship, Servette Rugby Club are regional champions 2015 of their category!!!
With tropical rain and ferocious opponents, the 1st half turned out to be a complicated one for the Geneva club. Only after four minutes of play, Jonathan Torossian (scrum half – SRC) had to be substituted off due to a deep cut to the head caused by a heavy blow from the knee of an opposition player.
Fortunately, Julien Laurin’s men were able to get their game back on track after 30 minutes and score seven tries of which six were converted, without conceding a single point.
The Lyon County Champions 2015, Servette RC, are now preparing themselves for the final stages of the National French Championship that will begin on the 17th of May 2015 in the 1/16th of finals against RC Varacieux, who are Champions of the Alpes region.
We would like to thank our loyal fans, U14 and U16 youth teams and their coaches present in the stands on Saturday. Your cheers were invaluable!!
